RUSSIAN SOLDIERS FIRST WORLD WAR.
Albumen print, 11.5 x 15 cm.

A group of Russian soldiers, many with musical instruments, leaving for the Far-East. Given the instantaneous techique of the photograph this is likely to have been taken 1904/05, with troops leaving for the front during the Russo-Japanese war. Verso with ink ms inscription in Russian, part crossed out, and signed "A. Zawadsky" below which, in pencil, in French: "Soldats partent pour l'Extrême-Orient. Photographie d'après nature à la gare des marchandises à Moscou." (Soldiers leaving for the Far East. Photograph from nature [ie an original photograph] at the goods station in Moscow.)
